“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:15-16
In secondary chapel this morning, our high school students were reminded that our God is a God of holiness. As Christians, we are called to live a set-apart life, different on purpose from the lives of many around us simply because God Himself is holy.
Living a holy life certainly means avoiding sins such as cheating, lying, gossiping, and sexual immorality, but it also means putting the needs of others above our own.
The Bible teaches us that, “When ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ,” and that we should “consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works” (1 Cor 8:12; Heb. 10:25). As Christians, we have a high responsibility to others to uphold those around us and make it as easy as possible for them to do what is right and holy.
Our students at LCA are taught that, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31). Every part of our lives must bring glory to this holy God. We do that by living this set-apart life focused on the needs of others rather than our own.
Each staff member here at LCA is privileged to be able to show off a great and holy God to our students. We value the opportunity to teach our students that they are called to be holy and to help others in every action they take. Please pray that this meek, Christ-like attitude will be developed in the lives of each of our students.
